Recently I was sent part of the Let’s Start Smart phonics course to try out with my younger girls. Each set of phonics comes with both a DVD and a CD that each cover the same letter sounds. That way your child can watch the DVD on TV and then later in the car listen to the same phonics lessons on CD. I thought this phonics series is very well done. I like that it has lessons that cover blends as well as single-letter sounds. Both my little girls (3 and 5) enjoyed watching the DVD’s, and the songs are catchy enough that with a couple repetitions, the girls were learning the songs. I am planning to let the girls watch these once a week or so at times when I am occupied with other children. I am really pleased that I was given the opportunity to try these out and I am looking forward to also reviewing their math series when it is released.
